Chicago Bears trade No. 1 selection in NFL draft to Carolina Panthers for wide receiver DJ Moore and picks, source says

    Wide receiver D.J. Moore has 364 receptions in his five-year career.

    (CNN)The Chicago Bears have agreed to trade the rights to the No. 1 overall pick in next month's NFL Draft to the Carolina Panthers, a league source told CNN on Friday.

    In exchange for the No. 1 pick selection, the Panthers will send wide receiver D.J. Moore, the 2023 No. 9 overall pick, a 2023 second-round pick, a first-round pick in 2024, and a second-round pick in 2025, according to the source.
    The trade will not become official until the start of the new league year on Wednesday.
      When speaking about potentially moving up in the draft at the combine last week, Panthers General Manager Scott Fitterer said, "You go get the guy that you want, you know.
        "If you have a conviction on a guy, you go get him. It's pretty simple that way. If you don't know and you're going to give all these resources to go up and get it, you're hurting your team in the long run.
